Comparative Study on the Image Compression of Photo Sharing Sites using Mean Square Error, Peak Signal to Noise Ratio and Data-Rate Savings
Nowadays, lots of people are very enthusiastic when it comes to sharing of photos in social media sites or photo
sharing sites (Madden, Lenhart, Cortesi, Gasser, Duggan, Smith and Beaton, 2013). However, it is observed that when
photos are uploaded the qualities of the pictures were reduced. This study evaluated the image compression of various sites
using mean square error (MSE), peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR) and data-rate savings to determine which site will
produce a better quality picture and allocates lesser memory space. The results attained from this study showed that there
are several photo sharing sites that gave out zero noise in image downloading and uses high data-rate saving.
